Bolts bolster receiver depth before Sunday

We’re not sure if Antonio Gates is going to play this week, but the Chargers still need a lot of help at receiver.

Vincent Jackson is four games away from helping, and usual starters Malcom Floyd and Legedu Naanee both will not suit up for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. 

That leaves Patrick Crayton, Buster Davis, and rookie Seji Ajirotutu, who was activated off the team’s practice squad Saturday to help out.  To make room on the roster, the team placed linebacker Kion Wilson on injured reserve.

Philip Rivers is going to have to play his very best Sunday to win with this group.

    Too bad this isn’t being played in NE. BB usually has his team playing well on the west coast, but home field is the only advantage the Chokers have.

    there is no way in hell the chargers can win this game

    Craytons no joke, this Buster might have one good fight in him like Douglas.

    This is amusing. It sounds like Gregg is tip-toeing away from his prediction on Patriots v. Charges. Don’t! Unfortunately, this game—in San Diego—has all the vibes of a “trap game” for my Pats.
    Besides, I don’t trust that guy with the unorthodox—but very effective— throwing style.
    Memo to “Hoodie”: Don’t give Phil too much time—even with that receiving corps.

    Let’s see – most talented team in the league going up against a Patriots teams that is either:
    (a) a bunch of washed-up old-timers living off their reputations, or
    (b) a bunch of rookies and second-year players that haven’t figured out how to compete in the NFL.
    The Chargers have been romping through such tough opponents as the Rams and Raiders on their way to a sterling 2-4 record, and the Patriots have struggled against doormats such as the Bengals, Ravens, Dolphins and Jets whilst posting a disappointing 4-1 record. Only three of the Patriots five opponents made the playoffs last year.
    It’s such a mismatch, it’s a wonder the NFL will let them play.

    i agree with clintonrb, the patriots are too good for the chargers. belichick will exploit each and every weakness they have.

    The Patriots are going to dominate this game, especially on special teams. This will be the second time this season they get a special teams coach fired. A nice road win cross-country can finally put to bed last years road woes. Have fun Pats fans. It looked like quite a party at Players last night. Woo hoo!

    Bolts have NO running game.
    NO offensive line.
    Hurting badly for Recievers…Look for alot of Bolt turnovers today vs.the Pats Defense.
    Rivers cant do it all, hes having trouble being effective….if he tries to force things against this defense hes going to have a LONG day.
    Im not a Pats fan…but this one could get ugly for the Bolts.
    Pats 31
    Bolts 10

    @robsterNY
    By “no run game”, I suppose being 13th in the league means none to you . Does that mean that teams ranked 14th – 32nd have a negative run game?

  15. MH767 says: Oct 24, 2010 10:36 AM

    Easy wins are what the Chargers said about Raiders and Rams. No win is easy.
    Can’t stand this nasty Boston trash here. You guys come to the West Coast and brag about how great Boston is and how great your sports teams are. If it’s so great, g0 back.

    Did they bolster their lineup with #16 Prince from the Canon commercial?

    Chitown 26 …….
    Keep talking , the only person being slammed is jay cutler with that sorry Offensive line . Guy has lost most of his brain cells this year already . Enjoy mike martz , bears are trash . Can’t over look the chargers , ryan mathews is averaging 5 yards per cary and rivers is a big weapon , with that said . Pats should take this game on the road

    You suck!
    Now I have to clean my computer desk because I just spit my Mello Yello all over it.
    Great job!

    Fortunetly for the Bolts they are playing the lowly Pats.
    Mathews gets 125+ yard rushing, WR Richard Goodman catches 2 TD’s and the D intercepts a washed up Brady 3x
    Bolts 35
    Pats 20
